CeMEAS Lecture Series
The central concern of our lecture series is the reflection of China’s rise and its consequences for the world as well as China’s homeland affairs. [expand title =”more”] Background is that despite the common notion of the Asian Century there are shortcomings in our understanding of the significance and character of China’s rising power from the periphery to the centre of the international system. CeMEAS invited a number of experts from various disciplines, such as Architecture, Politics, Law, History and East Asian Studies from all over the globe to talk about China’s global impact in the 21st century.
The CeMEAS Podium aims at stimulating wider public debate on controversial and pressing topics in the research of East Asia.

Encouraging interactivity and discussion, the Podium will have plenary sessions for presentations, as well as other sessions which include keynote and discussion.
Future topics include: Environmental Protection, Labor Relations, Food Security, Religion and Ethnic Diversity in China, Demographic and social change.

The Salon provides PhD students the opportunity to present their work to senior faculty and one another. Participants will receive feedback on their dissertations from participating senior scholars, faculty and peers.
The colloquium will be conducted in an informal and interactive manner. Participants will engage in scholarly exchange on topics related to the dissertation proposal, theory and methodology, relevant literatures and research strategies.
